New Election Results In Calaveras County
San Andreas, CA – While there was a slight change in the numbers with an updated count, there are still 3,600 ballots to count from Tuesday’s primary election, according to Calaveras County election officials that could impact some races.
There are two key races were candidates are close to the 50-percent need to outright win a seat. In the sheriff’s race, the top vote getter is the current Sheriff Rick DiBasilio who has 49.31-percent just shy of the mark. In the District 3 Supervisors race, challenger Merita Callaway has 47.28-percent with incumbent Michael Oliveira in the second spot at 28.96-percent; most likely forcing a run off in the November election. Even with the new vote totals, incumbent Clyde Clapp remains behind challenger Benjamin Stopper sitting at 32.48-percent to 31.52-percent in the District 5 Supervisor race.
